Ordinary rituals are part of everyday life. Our personal rituals define who we are, what we value, what we strive for, our dreams. Collectively, they define our culture, our times, our society's fears and hopes. I am interested in exploring how ordinary, everyday rituals take on extraordinary meaning. I create work that layers and merges fragments of ritual experience combined with the chance elements that infuse daily life with mystery, allowing us to interpret art according to our own dreams and desires. My creative process mirrors the themes I am trying to explore. Through a combination of repetition and chance, the meaning often emerges for me after the creation take places. Then, I uncover it layer by layer as an archeologist might put together a picture of a distant past society by uncovering fragments of elements of their everyday lives and rituals.
